Please read our Answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

 

GROUPS


➊ For which ages do you have Swimming Lessons?


We have Swimming Lessons for children ages 2 and up. 

The lessons are organised by age group:

  • 1 group of children from 2 to 3 years old;
  • 2 groups for children from 4 to 6 years old;
  • 1 group for children from 7 to 9 years old.

 

➋ Do you have Swimming Lessons for babies?


Not at the moment, as we do not have an instructor qualified to teach Swimming Classes to babies from 6 months to 2 years old.

 

❸ What level are the Swimming Lessons? Beginner? Intermediate? Advanced?


The lessons are adapted to the age group and individual level of the children.

If you prefer, you can take Private Lessons.

 

➍ What is the number of places for Swimming Lessons?


Our groups are small, with a limited number of places for up to 10 children, in order to provide a more individualised and personalised training.

 

➎ Do you have spaces available for my child at Swimming Lessons?


Please contact our Reception by phone to find out if there are still any spaces for your child's age group:

 

If there is no availability, we may inform you about registrations for the next group or when there are any drop-outs in the current group.

The contacts on our Waiting List are the first to know about the new Packages of Lessons that we will open soon. We regularly contact those interested via telephone/mobile phone. If you wish to be contacted by our Reception before we publish information online, please provide your phone number and e-mail address.

It's possible to open a new group in another schedule, if we have enough people interested in the same group age. This was the case for children aged 4 to 6 years old.

 

❻ May my children take Swimming Lessons together?


If the children were attending regular Swim Lessons, we can make an exception and include the youngest child in a higher age group. However, the final decision will come from the Instructor. It will be necessary to evaluate the level of the younger child.
 

 

TIMETABLE


➊ How many Swimming Lessons can my child attend per week?


Each group has 2 Lessons per week.

 

➋ How long are the Swimming Lessons?


Swimming Lessons for children from 2 to 3 years old last 30 minutes.

Swimming Lessons for children from 4 to 9 years old last 45 minutes.

 

 

❸ When do the next Swimming Lessons start?


The start date of the Packages of Lessons is subject to a minimum of 5 paid registrations. Please contact our reception for information on the expected start date of the next Package of Lessons.

If you are on our Swimming Lessons Contact List, we will contact you via telephone when we have more information about the date for the next Packages.

 

➍ When do Swimming Lessons end?


All Packages of Lessons have a defined start and end date.

If a Lesson is cancelled, it will be compensated at the end of the Package.

 

➎ Are there any Swimming Lessons on Bank Holidays and Festive Holidays?


There are no Swimming Lessons on National and Municipal Holidays and school holiday periods to celebrate Christmas, Carnival and Easter.

 

❻ The Swimming Lessons timetable is not compatible with my work schedule. Will you have Swimming Lessons at another time?


Thank you very much for your interest.

The Swimming Lessons timetable depends on the availability of the Instructor, the Parents and Guardians and the indoor swimming pool.

We may open new lessons at other times in the future. If you are interested, we may contact you when we have Swimming Lessons at a time that suits you.

 

 

REGISTRATIONS


➊ How much is the monthly membership, please?


Our Swimming Lessons have no monthly fee.
We do Packages for Swimming Lessons with a defined start and end date.

If you have interest in continuing the Swimming Lessons, you can buy a new Package of Lessons.

 

➋ How much are the Swimming Lessons?


Lessons are sold as a package of lessons. Each Swimming Lesson costs 10€.
Ex: A package of 12 lessons costs € 120 per child.

 

❸ I am interested. What do I need to do to sign up my child?


Registration is done in person at our Reception, between 7:30am and 10pm.

If you still don't know where the Browns Sports Resort Health Club is, at Caminho dos Golfes, Vilamoura, we recommend you see our location on Google Maps: g.page/brownshealthclub

You will be asked to fill in a Registration Form with personal data of the Child and the Parents or Guardian and agree to the Regulations and Terms of Responsibility.

The payment of the full amount of the Package is required for registration to be accepted.

If it is the first time that the child has Swimming Lessons with us, you will be asked to pay the Inscription Fee (value: 10€).

 

➍ Can I sign my child for the current Swimming Lessons or do I have to wait until a new Package starts?


If there is a place in the current Package, your child may start attending Swimming Lessons immediately. There will be no charge for Lessons already given in the Package. The amount to be paid will be adjusted. We will sum up the number of Lessons to be given until the end date of the Package. (€10 per lesson).

 

❺ Can you guarantee me a place please for next month?


Being on our contact list does not imply that we will guarantee a place for your child.

The payment of the Package of Lessons is a mandatory requirement to fill the places.

 

❻ Is the value of the Package of Classes refundable?


If the number of children is insufficient to start a Package of Lessons, we will do the refund.

 

 What if my kid miss a lesson?


In the event of a student missing regular lessons or substitute lessons, whether these are held at regular times or stipulated times, Browns Sports Resort is not responsible for their substitution or refund.

Missed lessons will not be reimbursed or compensated for. If a Medical Certificate is presented, specifying the reason for which the student could not attend, the class will be compensated for in future swimming packages.

 

❽ May I pay a small amount of Swimming Lesson?


No. Packages of Lessons must be paid in full.

 

❾ Is it possible to do just one lesson per week and pay only half of the price for the Package? My child could only go one day a week. I am just trying to work their other extra curricular activities out.


We understand that children may participate in other extra-curricular activities within our lessons' timetable, however attending 2 Swimming Lessons per week is more beneficial to children's learning.

As these are packages with a set start and finish date, lessons are planned so that children can progress over time.

If they attend only once a week, they may not be able to keep up with their classmates.

As we have limited places available, Parents and Guardians that want their kids to attend these lessons twice a week and pay the full cost of the Package are at the top of our list of registrations.

 

❿ May 2 siblings share the same Package of Lessons? One going on one day and one going on another?


I'm sorry it's not possible to make an exception.

You would have to pay for the full 2 Packages of Lessons, even though you can only come for half the classes.

 

 Can my child try 1 Lesson for free?


Every situation has to be addressed individually.
Please contact our Reception.

 

 Can I drop in at Swimming Lesson time for my child to try out?


Requests for trial lessons are analysed individually.
If we approve your request, the trial lesson will be scheduled in advance.

 

Rules and Regulations

For the orderly running of the Swimming Lessons, we would like these measures to be respected:

 

➊ What are the Health and Safety Measures?


All people that enter the Indoor Pool must wear a swimming cap. This measure also applies to Parents and Guardians accompanying children in the water.

It is mandatory to use clean flip-flops in the access area of the Indoor Pool. It is not allowed to circulate barefoot or with shoes worn on the outside.

Taking a shower is mandatory before entering and after leaving the Indoor Pool.

After using the Indoor Pool, you must dry off with a towel before circulating in the Health Club areas or going to the Changing Rooms.

Filip-flops, towels and other personal items are the Parent or Guardian’s responsibility. You can buy a swimming cap at the Reception.

 

➋ May I accompany the child in the Pool?


Children in the group from 2 to 3 years may be accompanied by ONE parent or guardian inside the Indoor Pool but must be properly equipped:

  • flip-flops
  • swimming cap
  • bathing suit

 

❸ Can I watch the Swimming Lessons?


It is recommended that the parents or guardians of children aged 4 to 6 and 7 to 9 watch the Swimming Lessons outside the access to the Indoor Swimming Pool, through the window in the corridor.

 

➍ Can I film and/or photograph my child in the Swimming Lessons?
